    I am unable to swallow tablets - and my GP is aware of this. However, last week I was given a script to commence Duromine - 30mg capsules.
    Am I able to open the capsules and mix it in with jam?

    No.
    Duromine comes in special capsules that provide a SPECIAL SLOW release of the active substance, therefore it must not be opened. It should not be dissolved in stomach. Otherwise Duromine will lose all its effect.
    Plus, Duromine capsules ain't tablets - they are smaller and narrower. I think you will be able to swallow them without problem.

    Take care and do not ignore this recommendation!
